from the BBC Media Centre


Tim Vine, Ricky Hatton, Nina Conti and Jon Culshaw and a host of other stars will be donning their dancing shoes as entertainment extravaganza, “Let’s Dance for Comic Relief” returns to BBC One.

Fronted once again by Alex Jones and Steve Jones, the showdown kicks off on the 16 February and will span four weeks, with three star-studded Saturday night heats culminating in a grand final on the 9 March. Each week, viewers at home will get the chance to vote for their favourite act who will gain a place in the final.

Once again, our dancing celebrities will be judged each week by a panel of top TV personalities that will feature such comic legends as Frank Skinner and Jo Brand. Each week, the judges will choose from the runners up to join the viewer’s favourite in the final. There will also be a music performance from a chart topping artist each week.


oh great - more from the "comic legend" that is Jo Brand Plain

This has to be the lamest final in the show's history. Wouldn't want to get involved until seeing the running order - wouldn't be surprised to see Tim Vine get the pimp slot (as a bit of a Beeb favourite) & if so, he will be the value.

Think man dressed as woman would have had a clean sweep in this bar putting on the ritz beating kane the unfunny comedian and rowland rivron doing fat boy slim.  This year we have the mix of the really can dance (cotton ala putting on the ritz), woman dressed as man and the rivronesquelite Vine. Not had a bet and probably won't but best dancer Cotton just for me.

2 wins 2 runners up for pimp spot in final. One of the runners up was putting on the ritz which is kind of what cotton is doing. Got a decent bet on cotton at shade odds on.  Might just let it ride.
